Brownsea II

June 28th- July 4th at New England Base Camp

Brownsea II is a unique and exciting hands on approach designed to teach youth leadership skills through the actual practice and use of Scout Skills. Skills most closely concentrated on are camping, hiking, nature study, pioneering, and cooking. This course closely parallels the first Scout camp conducted by Lord Baden Powell in 1907. This program places special emphasis on Scout skills, teaching and practice; the purpose of Scouting; and the role of the patrol method within the troop program. It is not done by classroom lecture, but rather by programs of skill, leadership exercise, and patrol competition. Scouts who complete the program will have a better awareness of their own strengths and weaknesses for their personal leadership styles. The Brownsea Scouts will sleep in tents prepare their own meals by the patrol method and will be expected to live and act as First Class Scouts.

Requirements: All Scouts need to be First Class or above and have attended a week-long summer camp. Ages should be between 13-16 years old.
